The meeting was opened by Ms. Karima Bounemra Ben Soltane, Director of the Development Information Services Division of the Economic Commission for Africa, who welcomed participants to the meeting of the Partnership for Information and Communication Technologies in Africa. Ms. Ben Soltane noted that while this was the annual meeting of PICTA, smaller PICTA meetings had been organized previously in 1998 at major meetings related to ICTs and development, notably the World Telecommunications Development Conference in Malta in April- May, Telecom 98 in Johannesburg in May and the Global Connectivity for Africa Conference in Addis Ababa in June. This practice would be continued in 1998-1999.
